03 December 2019

Sixers captain Ellyse Perry and Marizanne Kapp.

Sixers captain Ellyse Perry and South African allrounder Marizanne Kapp have been named in the inaugural WBBL Team of the Tournament.

Despite missing the final five matches due to a shoulder injury, Perry finished as the sixth leading run-scorer for WBBL|05 with 469 runs averaging just under 94. The allrounder also became the first player, male or female, to post 2,500 Big Bash runs in November.

Kapp was superb with bat and ball. The leader of the Sixers bowling attack in WBBL|05 claimed 15 wickets at 20.2 taking Kapp to 77 career Big Bash wickets, fourth on the list of all-time leading wicket takers in the WBBL.

The seamer also became the second Sixer to take a WBBL hat-trick against the Melbourne Stars at Hurstville Oval. Her wife, leg-spinner Dane van Niekerk, is the other.
